OUCH!  Nothing like a good market meltdown to get your attention. 
None of my indicators are flashing a market buy right now, but
that could change very rapidly in a market this volatile.  Note
that high beta stocks, like the ones featured in this newsletter,
tend to under-perform the market during down trends like the
one we're currently in - the opposite is usually the case during
up trends.

As of the close of the market today, the Rapid Growth System 
was down -22%  for the month, the Aggressive Growth 
System was down about -17% for the month, and the S&P500 
was down about -9% for the same period.  The following table 
shows where we stand, year to date:

S&P 500 (YTD) -21%
Rapid Growth System (YTD) -36%
Aggressive Growth System (YTD) -30%

We will not know the official results of either portfolio until 
after we make our trades on Wednesday morning. Official 
results will be published on the web site. 

Just a reminder, the top 30 stocks picked by our computer 
program for both portfolios are listed on the web site, just
click on the above link to view them. This is done for 
subscribers who may want to hold stocks from previous 
month's newsletters, if they still are ranked in the top 30 by 
our computerized screening models. Our model portfolios 
do not follow this method, but the top 30 service was 
requested by many subscribers, so we're happy to provide it.

And now, here are this month's computer generated stock picks. 
Remember that each stock in both model portfolios should
represent ten percent of the value in their respective portfolios
based on the price they are purchased at on 10/1/08.  This months
stocks, which will be bought, or re-balanced, for the Rapid 
Growth System, on Wednesday, October 1, 2008, are:

Ticker Symbol Security Name

* I have a small position in LSI in my personal account.  If this
makes you uneasy, you should substitute PMCS for LSI this month.
